Been looking at this printer for sometime to replace my aging HP 8500.
It's not one for everyone, I realise, but it fits my purposes and long term budget. Although it is nearly £180, with the saving on buying expensive ink cartridges (HP cartridges for that 8500A are getting pretty pricey) or clogging up a good printer with 'compatibles', it is actually a great price. It's going to cost up front, but the deal is in having those ink tanks. With my wife returning to Uni for her degree in nursing, I want economical printing.

The reviews for it are mostly very good. The big selling point is the refillable tanks for ink. Easy to use and refill. It comes with 2 years of ink. That's based on 4500 b/w and 7,500 colour pages. Those kind of numbersmay not mean much, but with many high capacity cartridges giving around 500 pages, that's comparable to around 24 cartridges. And of course once you use that up, whats the refill costs. Well a full set of inks for this is around £34 for genuine cartridges, giving you a huge saving the second time around. If you only paid a tenner a cartridge (i reckon that's pretty cheap) for another printer, that other printer will cost you about £240 to do the same, and the second time around, you are looking at £480 total, this printer will have set you back around £210. If you make the printer last for a third refill, wow, serious savings. This was the no-brainer for me.

And apart from the cost of cartridges, there is of course the ecological side. 4 empty 70ml bottles compared to 24 empty cartridges.

Current Epson promotions are £40 cash back on this model (until 31/10/2016) (https://www.epson.co.uk/en/viewcon/corporatesite/cms/index/12256/) AND a 3 year warranty (http://www.epson.co.uk/viewcon/corporatesite/cms/index/10939/)

£176.06 delivered AFTER cashback (£216.06 upfront). Epson have a good reputation for paying cashback. Amazon sales page confirms this printer is eligible for cashback and extended warranty.

Useful info: Wifi and ethernet. Manual duplex (not auto). Smart phone app.

This is the Epson sales pitch

Say goodbye to ink cartridges

The star of the ET-4500 is its newly designed integrated ultra-high-capacity ink tank system, which completely does away with the need for ink cartridges. That means less fuss and much more printing between refills than other inkjet printers.

Imagine not having to think about ink for two years. As well as doing away with ink cartridges, the ET-4500 has four colour 70ml Epson genuine ink bottles in the box, which make it easy, clean and quick to fill the ink tanks.

Equipped with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi direct, the ET-4500 can take advantage of all Epson Connect5 features. Print quickly and easily over Wi-Fi from a smartphone using the free Epson iPrint app, print remotely or email the ET-4500 a print job.

Quick, quality results

The ET-4500 uses Epson's own Micro Piezo technology for excellent-quality print-outs. Mono prints are delivered at a rate of 9.2 pages per minute while it can issue 4.5 colour pages per minute6. A 30-page ADF helps boost productivity.

I had a look at the at the weekend.
Maybe worth paying a bit more for EcoTank ET-4550 as that has duplex printing and paper draw too.

An interesting article on the more expensive ET-4550 can be found @Never buy an ink cartridge again
That model works out at £307.99, after cashback, but has improved print quality as well as the duplex. Not something that was worth the extra £120ish for me. Useful read though especially on the savings this printer makes claims of

I seen these while i was away at half the cost of here, i was going to buy but didn't want to risk bringing it back on the plane as the cowboy baggage handlers would probably break it

Thanks.
All my printing is duplex and we bought the duplex adapter for our current printer.
My current Epson, around 11 years old, have started banding colours. Happy to stick to Epson again.

Bought a similar Epson printer in Kuala Lumpur for £50. No problem taking back to the UK with Emirates. Well worth it as printer ink is probably the most expensive substance on Earth at present. The ink that came with the printer is still going strong 18 months on.

Please note, this is not expired. Some Trolls just can't help themselves

Still available, but mods won't sort it, so hopefully those that want this deal can find it and I won't be bothering to post more deals as the mods would rather let the trolls that don't post deals themselves dictate the site. Shame that HUKD prefers its non-contributing members to those that take the time. It's gone rotten on here for some time and the rot seems to be going all the way to the mods

Thanks for the post, have you experience of using 3rd party inks in these printers - something you would or would not recommend?

To be honest, the inks as sold by Epson are pretty cheap and using third party inks is always a risk, as original ink density is taken into account when designing printers. Viscosity can be an issue with other inks, so if the saving is worth it, such as with expensive HP inks, I have always used decent 3rd party ones, but the costs of the Epson inks seems pretty cheap anyway. So in my opinion, I won't take the gamble, but I am certain there will be others that disagree. I think it's a personal choice, but as you asked, felt it polite to give my answer.

Unfortunately the lower priced seller is now out of stock and was selling at £216.06 including postage. If you can find another around that price then you will have a bargain, meanwhile this price point should be considered expired, but the cashback is available until 31st October if you can find another seller
